How do you fancy your favourite sweet biscuits in spread form? On toast, in sandwiches, on whatever you fancy? Tesco have introduced a range of sweet spreads with a biscuit theme, as well as the classic chocolate type in The Finest Range. Available are Custard Cream, Cookie, Bourbon and Cookies and cream. In the finest range of chocolate spreads, there are Smooth Chocolate, Salted Caramel Chocolate, 30% Dark Chocolate and Crunchy Hazelnut Chocolate.
What could be better than indulging yourself with sweet treats and a hot cup of tea as the colder weather comes to us. For breakfast, tea or supper.
We were given the Custard Cream and the Finest Hazelnut Chocolate spreads to try, so we gave them a whirl on some French Toast.
The Custard Cream spread is exactly what it says on the jar. Which to me was totally bizarre. Not sure what I expected, but it literally is Custard Cream in a jar. The taste is just like a biscuit. The consistency isn’t too sticky, and spreads well. Rather sweet, but then that is to be expected.
The Husband tried the Tesco Finest Hazelnut Chocolate spread (I cannot eat hazelnuts), and described it as tastier than the usual type. He said it is more chocolatey, and the nuts are crunchy and pleasant.
We ate both on French Toast, but I can imagine these being quite versatile with all kinds of delicious sweet treats. Good with croissants, crumpets, pancakes, on toast, as a cupcake topping, with warm Belgium waffles, the choice is wide.
These sweet spreads can be stored in the cupboard, so don’t have to be eaten all in one go, don’t feel obliged that way.
Fuss Free Ratings
Taste 8/10 The Custard Cream spread is very like a custard cream biscuit, which is both nice, but odd at the same time. It is very sweet, so if you like sweet, this is all good. The description certainly fits it well.
The Finest Hazelnut Chocolate spread is crunchy, and more chocolately than sweet, which my husband described as good.
Convenience 10/10 Very convenient for all kinds of usage. Stores well, uses well.
Value 7/10 They both cost £1.99, however the Finest range spreads are 200g, whereas the biscuit spreads are 400g.
The spreads come in glass jars that can be recycled, with metal or plastic lids.
Unfortunately neither of these products are suitable for nut allergies (although I was ok with the custard cream version). Both products contain milk.
Would The Fuss Free Jen family buy these? I’m going to indulge every so often, as I know certain smaller people in this family like a sweet treat.
Available to buy at Tesco supermarkets.
Thank you for the tasters Tesco.
